About Us
Spike, the Pet of the Day
Name: Spike
Age: Eleven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Charleston, South Carolina, USA
   This is Spike. He is such a special guinea pig. He is very friendly and he helps us take care of our other five guinea pigs - two of which are his seven month old daughters and the other three are a mother and her two newborn babies. He has already been through a lot in his young life - he has had ringworm and is now dealing with cancer.

    Spike is my favorite! I dont know what breed he is - I guess just a mix. He helps with the others - especially the two new babies - by chasing them around and helping the mom clean them. His favorite game is tug-of-war with a toilet paper roll. He loves attention. His favorite food is apples and he has a favorite drink too! - it's orange juice. He loves the stuff! We found out he has cancer because he gotten huge abscesses on his jaw twice. He is doing much better now so we are hoping it was a wrong diagnosis.
